  • Notes 
    • Sometime between 1917 and 1920, Robert Boyd Herndon and Tennie May Calhoun separated, as he is living alone in Wichita Falls, Wichita County, Texas in 1920. By 1930, he is living in Tulsa, Tulsa County, Oklahoma. [US-1930-1i] has two entries for Robert. In the first he lists himself as “single”. In the second his is listed as “widowed”. The location of Tennie and of Robert Boyd’s sons, Robert Paul Herndon and William Pryor Herndon, in 1920 has not yet been established. Although it is known that the boys were not living with any of their immediate Herndon relatives in 1920. [3, 4, 10]
    • [US-SS, 1917a], as well as [Anderson-1964], lists Robert Boyd Herndon’s birth place as Chicota, Lamar County, Texas, but this conflicts with other sources including information from the birth certificates of his two sons which list Paris, Lamar County, Texas. This database uses the former as Robert Boyd’s draft registration was actually filled out by him. [3, 5, 7, 14]
    • Robert Boyd Herndon’s headstone and [Anderson-1964] incorrectly list his death year as 1933. [7]
    • [Anderson-1964] incorrectly lists the date of Robert Boyd Herndon’s marriage to Tennie May Calhoun as 20 Apr 1910. [7, 13]
    • In the 1930 US Federal Census, Robert Boyd Herndon was enumerated at the residence hotel where he worked as a clerk. Whether or not this was his actual residence is not known. [4]
